Meatless Days

Introduction by the winner of the 2018 Women's Prize for Fiction Kamila Shamsie




A masterly memoir of love, grief and longing in postcolonial Pakistan, with an introduction by Kamila Shamsie

Meatless Days is a searing memoir of life in the newly-created country of Pakistan. When sudden and shocking tragedies hit the author's family two years apart, her personal crisis spirals into a wider meditation on universal questions: about being a woman when you're too busy being a mother or a sister or a wife to consider your own womanhood; about how it feels to begin life in a new language; about how our lives are changed by the people that leave them. This is a heart-breaking, hopeful and profound book that will get under your skin.
